Isiolo Chief Magistrate Lucy Mutai has slammed Osman Galle 30 years for belonging to a terrorist group and 11 other charges related to possession of terrorism articles. The court ordered that jail terms run concurrently.

The court heard that Galle had visited a friend known as Osman Chule who had been detained over terror related charges on March 28, 2017 when Anti-Terror Police Unit (ATPU) officers pounced on him. Galle was in the company of one Mohamed Adan Hirbo.

On interrogation, the duo was found with two mobile phones, one which had videos suspected to be extremist and which belonged to the accused.

Galle was immediately arrested and Adan released after his phone was found with no incriminating information.

The prosecution provided sufficient evidence to show the materials contained elements of radicalisation and extremism. The phone that had suspicious materials in video form was three days later forwarded to ATPU forensic laboratory where it was established that it had incriminating content.

The court was told that the accused phone had 24 videos and 72 audios among them Hakuna Hifadhi ila kwa Imani, Wanafiq by Aboud Rogo, Mujahideen moment 10, Jihad na Izza, Kikao Cha kupinga Jihad and Masimba-Nasheed all instigating commission of a terrorism act.
